STAAD Foundation Advanced (SFA) is a powerful software for designing various types foundations, be it in building,  industrial or plant structure. 

However, there has been a long-standing requirement for demonstration of the workflow on importing the support reaction and other information directly from spreadsheet to SFA.

This is required when the engineer working on SFA doesn’t have STAAD on his computer and his client or colleague wants to  provide him with the support reaction values determined post STAAD analysis. The best way is exchanging the support reaction extracted from STAAD through spreadsheet.

This video walks you through the step-by-step procedures to set the proper format of the spreadsheet and then import it to SFA.
